Captain Comics is the Web site for syndicated comic book columnist Andrew A. Smith. While his site is a bit cluttered, his column is good — written in an accessible way for comic book fans and non-comic book fans alike and never descends into that scary fanboyish territory that most comic book “journalism” does. While mostly focused on the mainstream, Smith does cover a broad range, even dipping into related animation and film. His columns where he answers readers’ questions can be hit or miss, depending on the topics, but the writing is always solid.
Besides his weekly column, Smith has good standing content about topics from silly superhero costumes to the Comics Code of the Authority. His Web site — and column — is worthy read.
